Quick question (for the James project) - might anyone have the driver diameter (that would be including the flange) of the LGB Mogul and Aristo Rodgers?

Seeing that James is a close-coupled machine, I don't wish to take any chances this time. The powerblock chart here on this site specifies the diameters of both wheels minus the flanges - sufficient for me to narrow down the wheel selection between these two units, but not enough to find out whether the LGB flanges will be too large to fit under the splashers.

Pretty sure they are both about 1.8" tread diameter.
The rogers is pretty close to 2" flange OD.
I would guess the LGB is a tad more (being a leader in shiney flange).
Sorry I can't do any precise measurements at the moment.

I put two wheels together and noticed there is only a whisker of difference between the two flanges.
The LGB flange is larger but appears even more larger because the polished flat part of the flange reflects the light a lot more.
The Rogers tread is more tapered than the LGB.

I hope this helps some

Thank you, Andrew.

This does help, though I could still use the exact diameter if anyone happens to have it. 2" is just about the max I can work with on that machine - every millimeter counts - and I'm not looking to buy another set of drivers that don't fit ;)
